About

“ . . . control can never be a means to any practical end . . . It can never be a means to anything but more control . . . ” – William S. Burroughs

Fear Control is a short-run publishing imprint, specialising in matters of subcultural interest. It was setup in 2007, initially as Twenty Third Publishing, by Will Phuq, and is currently based in London, UK.

Fear Control has published print and digital zines and books covering biography, comix, short fiction, harm reduction, journalism, and more. This website includes most of this catalogue, as well as a selection of zines from our friends and peers – most available for free download in PDF form.
